For the nearly 70,000 Palestinian refugees living in Egypt, life is far from easy, as most of them live in a legal limbo subject to travel restrictions.

About 3,500 Palestinians, who live in mud-houses in Geziret Fadel village, face a daily struggle.

Despite this, many are just grateful to be allowed to stay in the country.
